Default SSH user can only Reboot


Can anyone tell me that is it possible to create an ssh user who can only reboot the server and do nothing more than reboot??

Awaiting your replies.

Even though I have not tried, but there is a way to make it happen.
User /etc/sudoers file to do the job.

Replace ALL (that specifies commands) with the specific command you want to give permissions and you are done.

example: User ALL=(REBOOT) ALL

Hope this helps.
